12/14Kt Gold filled

A thick layer of 12 or 14Kt gold fused onto a brass core. This layer will not chip and will often take anywhere between several months to a lifetime to wear off, depending on the weight of the item.

The gold is fused to the brass core with use of pressure and heat. By definition, the minimum layer of gold in an item must equal at least 1/20 of the total weight of the item (=5%). Gold filled items, even with daily wear, can last 5-30 years. They are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating and 17 to 25,000 times thicker than heavy gold electroplate (depending on the weight of the gold filled item compared to the quality of the regular plating).

Although gold filled items are considered hypoallergenic, some people who are especially sensitive to metals may still have allergic reactions to it.
